Alexis is 21 years old and only studied as far as third grade. He works as a ranch hand in a farm near his house and currently lives with his partner. They have been together for 2 years and have a 1-year-old son. Alexis has been working as a ranch hand for more than 6 years. He learnt the business of looking after a farm at home from his father who has always liked to keep animals. He worked alongside his father looking after and milking the cows that they had. Since he wasn't going to school he helped his father with the farm work from a young age and so learnt the ways of looking after animals.

The loan he is asking for from Fundación Campo is to repair his house, which is made of adobe and is being washed away by the rain. He needs the money to buy 20 bags of cement, bricks and a lorryload of sand and the rest is to pay for labour.

His first big dream is to repair his house and thanks to the loan he is being given he will be able to fulfil this dream. After that his plans for the future are for his family to have better living conditions and not have to go without anything in the home. He hopes his son will be able to study, as he was unable to do, and he wants his son and future children to better themselves and get on in life with a university degree.
